"Collected Letters" by Liu Jianhua

Resource Type: 
Keyword Results: 

Renowned installation artist Liu Jianhua has created a thought-provoking new artwork that blends the classic and contemporary: Porcelain letters and fragments of Chinese characters, suspended in midair, invite you to hunt for meaning.

Commissioned for our 50th anniversary, Liu’s striking artwork links the building’s past as the city’s Main Library with the museum’s distinctly forward-looking mission. For more information visit Collected Letters.
